While the 2018 Tekken World Tour was concluding in the Netherlands, the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour was making its next stop in Jönköping, Sweden, for DreamHack Winter 2018. This event would serve as the final offline Dragon Radar Event of the Tour, meaning this was the absolute final chance for some of these competitors in the European region to secure a ticket to either the 7th Saga Event, CouchWarriors Crossup in Australia, to compete for the Seven-Star Ball, or to the 8th Saga Event, the Last Chance Qualifier, where they can try their luck in potentially up to three single-elimination brackets to fill out the final field of eight competitors. With this also being the first event since last week’s balance patch, it will be interesting to see how the meta may be shifting towards the tail end of the Tour.
In total, 20 mighty warriors gathered to do battle in DBFZ, in addition to singles and doubles tournaments in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawlhalla.
